Show Notes:
All good things must come to a (temporary) end....in that spirit:

Thank you Rich Robinson for taking what you hear in your head out on the road, and allowing me to document as much of it as (sub)humanly possible

Thank you Marc Ford for "coming back into the fold" and making us clean again

Thank you John Hogg for stepping into gnome shoes and turning them into Magpie Boots with both your words and the heart you put into them

Thank you Sven Pipien for laying down a backbone that would do a blue whale proud

Thank you Joe Magistro for matching Sven's notes with your "riddim"

Thank you Nick Chris Matt Eddie Rosen for the notes in the middle. Meant in the highest regard

Thank you Nico Bereciartua for handling the "new guy" role with grace and dignity

Thank you Charity White for breathing new life into old classics, and adding depth and range

Thank you Katrine Ottosen for the dirty harp when it's necessary, and your big smile

Thank you Adrien Reju for being in the middle of all that onstage madness, yet ringing through it pure

Thank you Drew Consalvo for keeping your bangsnap crew (Doug, Randy, et al) in line, and laughing all the time

Thank you Martina for controlling the chaos of a months-long tour

Thank you The Magpie Salute for honoring your past, and looking towards the future

Thank you Dennis for your super-human uploading skills, and ability to satiate the masses

Thank you Anderson for taking on the underpants I collected to turn them into "visual profit" (read: free music for the fans)

Thank you to nearly every production manager in every city who worked with this strange Alaskan and made the documenting as fun and easy as possible

Thank you Mike Wolf for the use of the CA-14's from Madison on, as my Sonics deck had write timeout errors a few different times when the 24 bit files filled up, so the CA sources are complete

Thank you to all the fans who donated at a low point during (my budget), and with their quick donations allowed both NYC shows to be filmed with a single fluid-head tripod ($250 a cam x 2)

Thank you to bt.etree.org and The Traders Den and dimeadozen for being up, running, and facilitating getting this goodness to the fans (and the mods/donors of such sites)

Thank you to any fan or "power-that-be" who "put in a good word for me", and had faith in me to deliver

Fuck Hagar

Those'r the "show notes"

Listen for yourself
